Scout Releases New Song “Rather Be Blind”
- London-based singer-songwriter Scout has released a new song “Rather Be Blind” from her upcoming debut EP, following “Never Fade”.
Pristine synth-pop harking back to the past as much as it looks forward to the future, the song brings together 80's-leaning synthesisers with a pulsating rhythm section.
Scout said of the song, “I wrote this one over a beat I found on YouTube last year. It kinda lives in the same world as the other songs on the first Scout EP and is centered round moving back to North London/Enfield. I speak multiple languages and I heard this line that translated to 'I rather be blind than see my life without you' and right away knew I wanted that line in a song. It worked out with the rest of the lyrics so I literally just took it and used it. The song's quite nostalgic, about situationships and not realising what you have until you no longer have it. I want Scout to make people feel a little less lonely in their human experience.”
The debut EP is expected to be released later this year.
